    What about having separate forums for "In Development Games" and "Released Games"? Just a thought.

    Personally I look forward to this change and hopes it works out for the best.

    I still see this as an issue:

    Relying on the honor system and the dedication of mods to ensure that all topics are appropriately tagged is IMO, going to be more work than keeping them all separate.
    Tagging has to be enforced to be consistent to be useful IMHO.

    Yes, and yes.
    Don't like this much...
    Will we get separate "RPG", "Wargame" and "Boardgame" tags for this forum?

    I agree with some folks here... it's a nice idea but with five editions of D&D and Pathfinder it will just dilute the forum. I think it would be better to keep it as it currently is. It's much easier to find the topics for the game you want, and topics won't get buried under huge numbers of new threads.
    I'm not asking for characters to be lawful stupid. I want characters who care, who want to be heroes, aren't scared of doing the right thing, and players who try to help make the campaign more heroic.

    Maybe. But, I note that "tabletop" (or "General") had existed for years without tags, in times of higher volume than now, and seemed to work well enough.

    We do have tags for RPG and boardgames already.

    As for "buried under 5e discsussion" - if you check the 5e forum, or the combined example forum, you can see that this not the case. And how hard is it, really, to click on an icon to show you the game you want?

    The problem for some people is probably that you can't click an icon or two to get rid of the ones you don't want. That's maybe not a problem unless something is taking up 35, 40, or even 50% of the forum thread count.

    o from Monday 15th, the first category of forums will read:
    Tabletop Gaming
    D&D and Pathfinder
    Miscellaneous Geek Talk & Media Lounge
    This will create something of a challenge in terms of 'edition wars', and we mods will be monitoring things fairly strictly.
    You do seem to be asking for more 'edition warring' by putting everyone on the same forum. That will mean the forums are more active, though. Maybe that accounts for the drop-off in splitting forums? Separating 'warring' parties?

    I agree. I dislike the idea being put forward, but I'll live with it.

    I'm on board with this idea, too. I just don't have a good feeling about the tags. I used to love the old homebrew subforums, and browsed them all the time before joining the site. I was sad to see them combined. I still visit the GitP homebrew section, even if I don't look at much else on the sight.

    Just adding my voice. As always, play what you like

    If you click on an icon, you only get the respective topics shown. Seems you have re-select every time unless you open your threads in a new window, but it does work. So you won't see any 5e stuff if you are only looking for 4e.
